This webinar is intended to provide participants with information on the new 2552-10 cost report form, which was issued on December 30, 2010 by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Hospitals will be required to use this new form for years beginning on or after May 1, 2010. The new 2552-10 form will require hospitals to make several changes in the way they report, track and retain information used for cost reports. This webinar will provide an overview of the significant changes and key areas of focus as hospitals prepare for these changes.
